Business Book Best Sellers
Every once in a while, we like to look at what made The New York Times’ best seller list for the business category. And what do you know? When I went to check the list for this month, I found one with the real estate industry at the center, taking up the number one spot! The first book by the power couple behind HGTV’s Fixer Upper knocked the perennial favorite Malcolm Gladwell off his perch. Guess that means I should pick it up!
Here’s the full top ten for August. Let me know if you have any favorites here that I should feature on the Book Scan.
